Ways to Give
The Samaritan Center is supported
by the generous contributions of
individuals, businesses, corporations,
and foundations.
Your gift makes it possible for us
to subsidize counseling and mental
health care fees for individuals,
families, and children who have
limited financial resources, as well
as provide quality programming on
mental health issues to the community.
In 2023, we subsidized more than
1,200 counseling sessions. And in the
2022 - 2023 school year, we were able
to screen more than 2,700 middle and
high school students for depression,
anxiety, and suicide risk through the
TeenHope program.

Maintaining Hope
Dr. Scott Snyder, Director of Consulting
In the uncertain economic times facing us, the search for a new
job or different career path becomes frustrating and trying. As time
wears on, it can be hard to stay positive and remember all of your
career successes. Here are ways to overcome that frustration when
your confidence has taken a hit, while still maintaining hope.
Write a list of your accomplishments. This will help you
overcome the negative thoughts that can question your confidence and cause you to
lose hope. It's not enough just to write them down; read them every morning. Remind
yourself about your skills and capabilities to help maintain that hope and belief you can
do anything you set out to accomplish in your job search.
Set weekly goals. Begin by breaking larger goals into smaller pieces. Determine
the specific period you will spend updating your resume, practicing interviewing,
researching potential opportunities, and applying to jobs. And don't just look at your
career - also consider home goals you can complete to feel accomplished. Whether it's
painting a room or cleaning out cabinets, now is the time to pick one task each day or
week to accomplish.
Demonstrate self-care. Job searching can be exhausting. Every day you must wake
up and apply for more jobs and reach out to more contacts at companies with current
vacancies. Consider taking time to do something you enjoy, such as playing golf or
pickleball, hiking, biking, or simply reading a book. Adding realistic and achievable
goals to those activities can help you feel accomplished.
Consider volunteer work. Volunteering is a fantastic way to keep your skills sharp
and even develop new ones. Bring your expertise as a volunteer and remind yourself
that you have skills which can add value to an organization to help accomplish its
goals. Volunteering can also have major benefits to your well-being, as helping others
makes you feel grateful about what's good in your life while maintaining hope.
Remember, you can't replace your old job by staring at the computer eight hours
a day or praying for a recruiter to call you. Set boundaries for your job search. Decide
on a set period of time each day and then turn off the computer. Having hope and
confidence when looking for that next career opportunity will allow you to believe
in yourself, so when you do find that next opportunity, you won't rely on the job to
confirm your value.
